Minelab | Manticore Metal Detector | LMS Metal Detecting
Manticore (The Beast) Overview
The Manticore with Multi-IQ+ is the most powerful, fastest, and precise metal detector in Minelab’s history. The heart of the Manticore is its super-charged Simultaneous Multi-Frequency (Multi-IQ+) engine. This feat of innovation generates an incredible 50% power increase over the all-time best-selling Equinox series metal detectors. When combined with advanced 2D Target Identification (ID) and rich audio options, the detectorist has every bit of vital information arriving at their eyes and ears. The Manticore is an unrivalled detecting experience that pushes the boundaries of detecting to deliver more power, more depth, and more finds.
- MULTI-IQ+ Building on the successes of Minelab’s original Multi-IQ technology, Multi-IQ+ transmits more power through the coil at a wider range of operating frequencies to light up more targets in the ground. It has completely revamped signal processing which delivers enhanced discrimination, greater Target ID resolution, improved target separation, and provides a greater ability to tune discrimination and audio to suit detecting conditions.
- Fast Response: Find desired targets amongst ferrous trash like no other detector on the market with the Manticore’s exceptional target separation performance.
- Powerful 2D ID Map: See targets from a new perspective with the Manticore’s Two-Dimensional (2D) Identification (ID) Map. A 100-Target ID range and a visual Ferrous Limits layer helps detectorists take greater control and identify targets with precision. If it contains metal, you’ll see it on the ID Map.
- Enhanced Discrimination: Exceeding expectations with every swing, the Manticore delivers improved Target ID stability and close-target separation. With customizable Ferrous Limits, detectorists have unprecedented control to accept ferrous coins, reject complex ferrous targets, or dial-in maximum target unmasking in iron. Create a Custom Discrimination Pattern to accept good Target ID’s and reject bad ones. Edit the Ferrous Limits to classify combination (part-ferrous and part-conductive) targets as ferrous, so you hear less ferrous trash.
- Audio Your Way: Take control of audio with the Manticore. Hear target information the way you like it via superior audio controls including customizable target tones, suppression of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) chatter, and Continuous Pitch (VCO) audio with ferrous tones and genuine threshold detection tone. Assign the Pitch and Volume of up to 5 Tone Regions in order to amplify the targets you want to hear.
- Ultimate Search Modes: The Manticore delivers over 10 specialized Presets including All-Terrain Search Modes optimized for inland detecting; Beach Search Modes optimized for sand, surf, and seawater zones; and a Goldfield Search Mode optimized for detecting gold nuggets. Create up to ten Custom Search Modes that personalize the manticore to suit your detecting experience.
- Unrivaled Construction and Extreme Waterproofing: There’s no reason to sacrifice comfort for power. The Manticore weighs only 1.3 kg (2.9 lbs.) and features a three-piece, highly collapsible carbon-fiber shaft system with a premium Scorpion Armrest. No terrain is off limits with the IP68-rated Manticore. Dive up to 5m (16ft) for underwater exploration to find hidden targets others can’t reach.
- Intuitive Control: Cutting-edge technology is only half of the Manticore story. Making the Manticore’s power easy to access is just as important. That’s why the Manticore features a large color screen that delivers the most intuitive user experience ever offered on a detector.
- Boosted EMI Immunity: There may be a storm raging outside, but inside the Manticore it’s quiet and calm. Improved EMI rejection means it’s possible to operate using higher sensitivity while isolating target information, even in the most challenging environmental conditions.
- Choice Of Coils: The Manticore comes standard with the versatile M11 (11″ Round Double-D) coil. Available optional M8 (8″x5.5″ Elliptical Double-D) and M15 (15″x12″ Elliptical Double-D) coils mean detectorists can optimize the Manticore for all detecting conditions.
- Lighting and Vibration: The daylight may have ended, but that doesn’t mean your hunt has to. With the Control Box Flashlight, Display Backlight with Auto Adjust, Backlit Keypad, plus Handgrip Vibration, detectorists can power on long after the sun goes down.
- Clear Audio: Enjoy crystal-clear audio with the Manticore’s powerful External Speaker and lightning-fast Low Latency Wireless Headphones.
- Built To Last: Because Minelab is committed to leading the pack for performance and support, The Manticore is backed by Minelab’s global network and up to a 3-year warranty. With built-in software upgrade capability, the world’s most advanced metal detector will stay that way deep into the future.
